Canada II: Canada: It’s Worse Than I Thought

Recently I was writing an article about Stephen Harper and how his previous actions imply his future behavior towards First Nations.  However, accumulating background information for this suggests that things may be worse than I thought. I am going to simply present a list of articles, in no particular order, with minimal annotation in the ...

Canada II: AAND Under Harper Government

I will be the first to admit this post is somewhat speculative.  However, given the blatant actions of the Harper regime over the years I don’t think I’m going to be proven wrong.  Additionally, the Harper regime may not be the first Canadian government to enact this type of campaign but it is certainly the ...

Canada II: Harper vs First Nations

The following article, in a nutshell, provides the basis for all of Harper’s actions with regards to First Nations. He does not believe they should be able to stand in the way of so-called “progress” for Canada.  He also believes, being of the religious right, that the Earth is for us to plunder at will. ...

Canada II: Political War on Words

I think that progressives need to wake up. You see, the conservatives have been at war with us for decades now. It isn’t simply that they prefer slightly different policies than us. They want to dismantle all of the positive work done over the last few generations and put in place a system, a state, ...

Canada II: Harper’s Agenda and Playbook

Well, I wish I had of been wrong, but it all adds up so far. I’m sure more will show up, in terms of graft, when cracks finally show up in Harper’s government. First, do yourself a favor and read Federal Documents Spark Outcry by Oil Sands Critics. In the document, environmental organizations and aboriginal ...

Canada II: Douchebag Economics

I have no argument with the vast majority of mainstream economic theory. In fact I will quickly suggest that I understand and agree with the following items: Competitive advantage: trading partners generate higher overall productivity via trade. Free market efficiency: free markets are very efficient at allocating capital between profitable activities. Free trade: maximizing efficiency ...

Canada II: Stop Whining and Fight Back

This is great advice but a little hollow. In fact, Warren’s column essentially does the same thing it decries: Stop Whining about Political Impudence They’re doing to Rae what they did, so successfully, to Stephane Dion and Michael Ignatieff: They’re shaping impressions about Rae before Rae does. The best strategy, then, isn’t to call for ...

Canada II: Is the NCC a Super PAC?

It’s obvious, isn’t it? If you’ve been watching American television, and who hasn’t during the recent GOP convention Olympics, you know that Super PACs are third party funded operatives who do things on behalf of candidates. They do things that candidates can’t do. For example, they can raise unlimited amounts of money. You tell me, ...
